Coconut macaroons hold a dear spot in my heart when it comes to sweet treats. My mom used to make coconut macaroons every new year for the celebrations – and they always disappeared within minutes. These keto friendly treats aren’t exactly coconut macaroons – but they are equally as good!
The other night I was craving coconut macaroons, and my girlfriend was craving cookies. So we took it together to create a mixture of the two that we could both eat and love. Hence, coconut macaroon cookies! Soft and moist on the inside, but a hard and crunchy shell on the outside. A perfect combination between the two, with added chocolate as a bonus.
Make sure that when you’re shopping at the store, you find unsweetened coconut flakes. Check the nutrition listing because many will have added sugar/sweetener in it – which raises the carb count. You can easily find unsweetened coconut at Whole Foods in their self-measure section.
